: -- at odds with germany and britain? guest: president obama said the syria is not just a problem of the united states, but for the entire world. it is difficult for the united states to explain how it is staying on the sidelines and providing humanitarian support when there is a crisis of this magnitude going on. it will be increasingly more difficult to stay on the sidelines with the europeans pushing for more. host: said arikat, there has been discussion as to what the chemical weapons were used in science syria. in a news over the last 48 hours inside syria. any news over the last 48 hours? guest: the state department has no evidence to show that the syrian government or the opposition -- there have been opposition -- accusations on both sides about using chemical weapons. there has been no evidence of that. the united nations is leading an effort to determine whether chemical weapons have been used. there are all kinds of technical things involved. they need to conduct these experts to determine if it is by a examination or looking at injuries to determine whether chemical we

that you can be certain of, as obama looks at syria and iran, he wants to avoid any kind of entangling war, long expedition nature war like america has fought over the last 10 years. chris: these wars, if we go into iran, does anyone think it's a quick war, in and out, without historic repercussions on the other side? >> absolutely not, which is part of the reason why nobody within the -- there are very few people in the administration that have any sort of appetite for a war in iran. the same goes with syria. we saw with the libya entanglement, we saw sort of barack obama's doctrine. he is going to be looking for very much multinational-type force. he is going to the u.n. he is looking for the french to take a lot of the lead. he is going to be -- but nobody, even with both syria and with iran, there is no nobody particularly at the pentagon who is really wanting to do this right now. and barack obama least of all. chris: michael. >> chris, this poses problems, the perception which i think is accurate of our wearyness causes problems particularly in iran. people don't believe that this pr

the refugees coming in from syria. why is that important for the obama administration? >> judy, when i said there were two of the three allies in the region, the third most important ally there for the united states is jordan, a tiny country, but punches above the weight. jordan security forces and intelligence forces are excellent. and i described in the earlier piece some of the role it's playing. but king abdullah's on somewhat shaky ground, the economy is bad, and part of the problem is the refugees are a huge pressure point as the king sort of eloquently said today. few of us saw the foreign minister this afternoon who said it's almost as if-- he said it's as if another eight or nine, the king said 10% has been added to our population. the foreign minister said eye asked him the question the king was asked, would you ever shut your doors? and he said we just can't do that. but i have to say my nightmare scenario is i get a call at 3:00 a.m. and i'm told there are 50,000 refugees at the border, what do we do? >> margaret, just to wrap up quickly, we know the bulk of the president's time

korea. >>> well, tensions rising over the civil war in syria. just of course as president obama arrives in the region. >> that's right. the president is in israel for meetings with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. accusations by the syrian government and rebels of a chemical weapons attack have now raised new concerns. >> important to note there is no verification that either side used chemical weapons, but a u.s. lawmaker says there is in his words a high probability that the government did or is about to. >> we need that final verification, but given everything we know over the last year and a half i mike rogers intelligence chairman was under the conclusion that they were either positioned for use and ready to do that or in fact have been used. >> now, of course israel concerned about the war in syria just across the northeastern border. and these latest claims may increase pressure on the u.s. to perhaps get more involved in some way or another. >> for the latest on this situation in syria and president obama's middle east trip overall we have live reports now from john king in je
. so things are a little better. syria, president obama said today, use of chemical weapons in syria would be quote unquota game changer and i have to believe he is serious about that. >> what is your take on it? >> to comment on dan and iran, i think it's important, the president again in his press conference today with the prime minister put out that one-year timeline and while the prime minister said that they are getting close to his red line, he basically wanted to avoid creating a problem between him and the president. and i think that they are actually closer to where the president wants netanyahu to be on this, which is to give him time for diplomacy to try to exhaust that. at the same time, he has come closer to the prime minister in assuring him that if it does not work, he will take action. >> quickly on syria. >> in syria, if you go back and look at the president's language on this, he said that it would be a red line for me if syria used chemical weapons. today he said that it would be a game changer for the international community and that, i think is bit on of a shift.

was asked about yesterday's possible chemical weapons attack in northern syria. mr. obama said last year that if the regime used such weapons, it would cross a red line of its own. >> i've instructed my teams to work closely with all other countries in the region and international organizations and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note, without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons. the broader point is, is that once we establish the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. >> warner: both leaders spoke extensively about iran and about the different timetables the countries are on for possible military action to prevent an iranian nuclear weapon. mr. obama said he th

syria, and why the america has not been involved more in syria. >> obama: as is always the case when it comes to issues of war and peace the facts before you are important. it is incorrect for you to say we have done nothing. we have helped to mobilize the isolation of the assad regime internationally. we have supported and recognized the opposition. we have provided hundreds of millions of dollars in support for humanitarian aid. >> michael: and so you know, this is really the first time we've heard the president speaking directly about syria in such a way. what message is this sending eleanor? >> well, he took umbridge that the u.s. has done nothing and is forcefully listing everything that the u.s. has done. but in the context of what's going on over there it's the equivalent of nothing. i think he's been on the verge of doing something more. we've learned that hillary clinton and leon panetta both were pushing for more direct aid for opposition months ago. he has been resisting. it's a mess. how this plays out we may some day thank the president for not getting the u.s. involved,
in syria. president obama has said that that is his red line. is this conflict overshadowing the visit? >> reporter: we have to be very careful when we talk about chemical weapons. when the white house talks about chemical weapons and red lines, what we believe them to mean are the very potent chemical weapons we know to be in their arsenal, vx, mustard and sarin gas. no indication those have been used and no confirmation that chemical weapons were actually used in these attacks yesterday by allegedly by the rebels and the regime. the white house has said there's no evidence. but despite that, this obviously raises the fears of their use of them falling into the wrong hands, so while the trip won't be overshadowed, it certainly highlights the need to discuss this while here in israel. >> all right. alex marquardt in jerusalem, the world will be watching. thank you for that. >>> we also have some breaking news to tell you about from south korea. a possible cyberattack has paralyzed the computer networks of some major banks and broadcasters. >> the outages hit simultaneously boosting spe
